How to Take a Japanese Bath
Stone Bridge Press, Sep 1, 2006 - 40 pages
“This book is a physical work of art—as it should be, because the Japanese bath is an aesthetic event.”—Whole Earth Review
Since its first publication in 1992, this book has become a curious classic, taking a -simple (yet often incorrectly performed) activity and depicting it with a graphic, manga-style edge. In twelve drawings a young Japanese man is shown preparing, rinsing, soaking, communing, relaxing, contemplating—all an encouragement to readers to slow down, ease into the hot water, and enjoy this timeless ritual of purity and release.

Best pictures ever. Not in a creepy way, they are just funny. It pretty much does its job and tells you how, if you need to know or if you don't, to take a Japanese bath. Read full review

Accurate, though in a nearly content-free way. The illustrations are weak.
